Sailing anyone?

Fun, fun, fun with dear friends in northern Minnesota. Miniature Golf was one of our favorite family-fun activities. It is sorely missed (can no longer do 'cuz of NRLA)!!
This double LO features a few Michigan lighthouses visited during our mini-vacation to Whitehall, MI a decade ago. Lighthouses, Waterfalls & Wildlife are our absolute favorite things to see when doing our favorite things...nature walks, hiking, digital photography, etc.

Club Scrap is AWESOME!! I was a member from 2007-2008 and had to quit 'cuz unable to do hands-on (hybrid) scrapbooking anymore (due to NRLA & MCS). After few years of strict avoidance, nutritional supplements & homeopathic remedies... I was able to help a friend scrap pages for her upcoming son's wedding. She had to do all sorts of preps in order to come inside our house, but she was willing and it worked! ZERO reactions -- yipee!! So, I got "re"-hooked to scrap-booking -- and of course, HAD to reorganize stuff to make it easier to find things. It was like Christmas!! SO many fun things I forget were there :-)
Well, I have A LOT of ClubScrap kits, Stampin-Up! papers/cardstock and TONS of misc supplies. Just this week I finished an album project (from ClubScrap Dec-2007 kit)... I had liked it so much I had bought 4 for gifts... had gotten all the paper cut, but then project was on hold for 3+ years... they're finished! (all except for the acrylic cover decor, which will be customized for the recipient). PLUS, I finished our 1st grandson's album of his 1st year and started on our 2nd grandson's album - yipee!!
BUT, since I'm mainly a digital-scrapper now (much safer, even though all my scrap supplies are latex-safe, there are chemicals -- which my nasal-hepa/carbon-filters helped with), after working with ClubScrap stuff, I simply HAD to check them out again. btw, it was a member from the CS community-forum that suggested I try digi-scrapping back in Oct-2008... she also directed me to Jessica Sprague and Scrapper's Guide (now Digital Scrapper)—both which have GREAT tutorials for working with PSE (and PS). Add to that the PSE Technique magazine (and their awesome website), and I'm set... "except" for "gotta have more!". SO, I joined CS's digital club and downloaded April's kit, Come Sail Away (photo above is of the hybrid-kit) -- LOVE the green/blue colors!!!! AND, because I made the commitment to myself that if I was going to join a monthly club, they weren't going to sit in my PC gathering electro-dust... they were going to get used!! Hope you like the Pirate's Cove and MI Lighthouse layouts :-)
